At two points in the processing pipeline, metadata derived from collected data is inserted into BETYdb:
At the start of the transfer process, metadata collected and derived during Danforth's initial processing will be pushed.
After transfer to NCSA, extractors running in Clowder will derive further metadata that will be pushed. This is a subset of the metadata that will also be stored in Clowder's database. The complete metadata definitions are still being determined, but will likely include:
experiment and experimenter
plant age, date, growth medium, and treatment
